Re: 2016-2017 RPI watch

Just by nature of how RPI is calculated, of course a team around 150 is going to have a worse record than a team around 75 (assuming comparable schedules). I think the point is that, qualitatively, there may not be too big of a difference - in the sense that if the two teams played each other on a n...

Re: Who is the starting PG for the A10 tourney?

I kind of agree on Garrett, but you have to ride or die with Hassan this year. If he can drag himself onto the court, you roll with him.

Re: Game #26: @ George Mason, Saturday Feb 18, 4:00PM NBCSN

You don't really need bigs on offense in modern basketball. They just need to rebound and guard the rim. If he can average 11 pt/g eventually that's cool. If he does more, great. If he has games where he get 20 rebounds, I don't care if he gets 4 points. Especially next year where you'll have 6 or 7...

Re: 2016-17 Bracketology

It doesn't make any sense to keep worrying about the at-large scenarios. I guess we are technically not mathematically eliminated, but in order to get an at-large, we'd have to win out to the A10T final. If we get that far, might as well win it and remove all doubt. The path for URI realistically is...

I don't actually care whether he starts or not. But if I was coaching he'd be on the floor at the end of games. Stan plays aggressively and isn't afraid of the moment. There isn't enough of that on this team - I think it is where we are the most lacking.
